Nottingham Youth Orchestra opens its new season with an exciting programme of music. Join us to experience the drama, melody and vivid orchestral colours of Bizet's Carmen Suite no. 1, de Falla's nostalgic memories of Spanish life, realised in the evocative impressions of Nights in the Gardens of Spain and Franck's Symphony in D minor, with its soaring melodies, high drama and broad, colourful orchestral palette.

Our guest conductor is Alpesh Chauhan, who is the inaugural Conducting Fellow at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Alpesh joined the CBSO Youth Orchestra in 2005 and became their principal cellist. In 2007 he began taking conducting master classes as part of the Youth Orchestra Academy. He joined the RNCM in 2008 to study the cello with Eduardo Vassallo before deciding to pursue the prestigious Masters Conducting Course.

The soloist for Nights in the Gardens of Spain is Ben Dawson, who has, in a short space of time, established a career of considerable variety. As a concerto soloist he has appeared and broadcast with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Lahti Symphony Orchestra, RTE Concert Orchestra and the Sinfonia of Birmingham. His most unexpected solo appearance (audio only sadly) is as the soloist in Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue in Baz Luhrmann's film adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
